Have you ever gotten a gift card that wasn’t exactly “you”? With the holidays just having passed, I’m sure many of you got many gift cards some of which you may not be too keen about and well — would have preferred cash for, right? Well, not to worry because Coinstar has solved all our problems!
For the longest time I didn’t even know that there was a solution to this problem until I actually teamed up with Coinstar recently! I had NO idea that anyways was offering us a way to trade in those gift cards we didn’t want for
cash. To be honest, had I known that I probably wouldn’t have given my gift cards away to so many people over time.
Wait, who am I kidding,.. do you even know how many gift cards I’ve actually lost?!
So thanks to Coinstar you can instantly exchange gift cards for cash at any Coinstar Exchange kiosk! It’s seriously as simple as that. Head to any Vons near you and I guarantee they have a Coinstar Exchange kiosk or just to double check you can input your zip code here to see.
So here’s how it really works. Coinstar Exchange accepts gift cards from more than 150 stores and restaurants and you can sell more than one card at a time.
Step 1: Scan or swipe gift card and accept offer.
Step 2: Verify your identity.
Step 3: Insert your gift card ($20 minimum)
Step 4: Print & redeem your voucher!
The only thing I suggest doing is verify that your gift card is accepted at the kiosk. You can do so by heading here and browsing the list of accepted retailers/restaurants. Now you don’t even have an excuse to let those gift cards pile up and even get lost like me! Just exchange them for cash and buy yourself something you REALLY want.
